3D Printed Hydrogel Seeded With Nanoparticles Filters Toxins Similar To Dialysis, University of California, San Diego (UCSD) Study

Engineered nanoparticles have the capacity to grab onto toxins, but evacuating them out of the body undisturbed is a challenge since they can get accumulated inside the liver for hepatic metabolism and excretion, creating a risk of secondary poisoning. To overcome this, investigators at the University of California, San Diego designed a new 3D printed device that’s made of a hydrogel embedded with detoxifying nanoparticles, that permanently stay with it.
